Real-Life Fully-Formatted Templates®
The following is an example of one of the 39 Real-Life Templates that you will find in Instant Resignation Letter Kit. The thing that makes Real-Life Templates stand out from the typical cut-and-paste generic templates offered by most online services is that Real-Life Templates are professionally written fully-formatted business letters that contain valuable content which is based on actual business situations.
Each Real-Life Template is a separate "mini-case study" of the kind of real life situation that you will encounter on a regular basis in your personal or business life whether your involved in small business, home business, or a large corporation.
The beauty of the Real-Life Templates in the Kit is that they can be loaded straight into your word processing program. (MS-Word compatible). Then all you need to do is a bit of cutting, pasting and revising, and presto, you will have a fully-formatted professionally written document all ready to send out!

This is to advise you that I have accepted the position of Marketing Manager, with Gandolfo Networks Inc., based in Buffalo New York. Accordingly, please regard this as my official letter of resignation.
My last day of work here will be November 28, 2003. This will give me three full weeks from next Monday to complete the current marketing program design that I have recently been putting the finishing touches on. In addition, during this period I will be able to bring both you, and my deputy Aaron Roach, up-to-speed on all of the operations and outstanding issues in my department.
I am very much looking forward to the professional challenge being offered to me by Gandolfo, which as you know, is the market leader in its field. Incidentally, during the recruiting process, the Gandolfo people were very impressed with the experience and knowledge that I had gained here at LithText International over the past five years.
In closing, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to you as my supervisor, as well as to my many friends and colleagues at LithText. I have truly enjoyed my years working with all of you, and am grateful for the many learning and growth opportunities I was given over the years.
I wish all of you at LithText International continued success.

The following typical "fill-in-the-blanks generic template" was actually "borrowed" from one of the "other" online services that offers business letter templates in bulk. I use it as an example because it is typical of the quality of content and formatting that these high-volume template services offer.
I won't bore you by pointing out the numerous obvious weaknesses in content and formatting in this template when compared with the Real-Life Template above.
As the old expression goes "one picture is worth a thousand words".
